Former altar boy awarded $8.7m
“Our client went through what no child should ever have to go through, and he did so because the diocese paid no attention to the perpetrator it was putting in its parishes.”
A jury has awarded $8.7 million in damages to a former altar boy who sued the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington over sexual abuse he says he suffered at the hands of a priest. via Boston Globe

All the money in the world can't take these victims' pain away. My little boy was an altar boy only 8 years old. Father Gary Mercure raped and sodomized him until he was 15. He will never have a normal life. This is while this pedophile was at the Church of The Annunciation in Queensbury N.Y You see here in N.Y. a pedophile knows that most children are so afraid and intimidated that they won't tell until they are older. So... Sen Bruno, keep the Statute of Limitations at 23 so these pedophiles keep getting away with this. The Albany Diocese moves these perverts from parish to parish, so they can continue their molesting. We need an Unlimited Statute of Limitations so we can protect our children and grandchildren. Bruno Bishop Hubbard and a few other guilty ones should go to jail with Mercure! By the way 14 other young men have also come forward!
